Our 10 year old daughter came to me yesterday and said...

Posted by   + Show Post

"Mommy, I think I started my period at school today."

Aww, Kiara...yay!  Now our oldest daughter who is 13 and our youngest daughter have both started their periods.  our 12 and 11 year olds haven't yet, but now our 11 year old wants to carry around a pad JIC *just in case* she starts.

I gave her instructions on how to put a pad in, and to change it whenever she goes to the bathroom, and to not leave the remnants in the bathroom or her dad will get grossed out *lol*...which he has in the past. ;)

Kayla also told her that she started when she was 10 too, so i am sure that made her feel better. :)

She's definitely growing up!

Poor child!! I think it sucks being a female!! ;)

I'm not ready for any of my little ones to grow up. I'm not ready for any of these "talks" either!!

Oh I do too!! Sometimes DH sees me cryin & I'm just like I am so sad. He just keeps reminding me to focus on the right now & soak up every minute. And be positive for the future. Which I do look forward to seeing her blossom & grow & different activities she will be part of. It is just so very hard! Time moves so fast!!

Quoting Kmakksmom:

I get wistfully sad sometimes knowing that our kids are growing up, so I definitely know what you mean.



Quoting MySweetChild:

I need to have it very soon, although I am sure she already knows more than I think from her friends. It will definitely break my heart when she starts!! But I can't stop her from growing up! :(





Quoting Kmakksmom:

It is sad. Good luck to you when you have the talk. My younger daughters heard it several times, so they got the point when Kayla and Madison got it :)







Quoting MySweetChild:

Aww, how sad. My DD is 10 also & I am just saying this day will break my heart. I do not want my baby to grow up!!! :(




We have not even had the talk...I need to get on the ball & have it with her because I know these girls are starting earlier & earlier!

Yep! That's how we should think, but it's easier said than done, especially for us moms. I just want to tell our kids not to grow anymore, that I want them to stay little. Kayla all the time now says "Mommy, I'm going to high school in the fall!!" I say to her..."don't remind me, I'm trying to savor the time before you go. I remember the day you were born..."

I have 4 daughters and 1 son. So, everything "girly wise" gets handed to me while my husband gets to handle the boy talks as Kaden gets older. :)
